About the property

5 bedrooms 3 bathrooms hill views

Villa Fontanella is situated in chestnut-wooded hills near the medieval hill town of Coreglia Antelminelli, an area of outstanding Tuscan beauty. The property faces lush meadows embracing a curve in the Segone torrent: an entrancingly beautiful setting. The glass fronted 45 square metre sitting room is ideal for dining or relaxing, with the 36' x 18' pool just a short distance beyond two large paved areas, one shaded by a wisteria pergola. The 25 acre grounds offer water gardens, stream banks and wooded glades, making Villa Fontanella ideal for families, nature lovers and naturists.

Best Week of Vacation Every

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 8 stayed here for a week and loved every minute of it. We were 4 kids and 4 adults. There was ample space for everyone. We alternated days of lying around by the pool and driving around to various towns, markets, and sights. My kids loved playing in the mountain stream that runs by the house. We also played a lot of table tennis. In the evening we would top off the day by cooking together and eating in the beautiful, rustic dining room with the doors open into the garden. A few notes: Make sure you have Jonathan's cell phone number and the GPS coordinates prior to your arrival - it's a bit tricky to find. We were in a large rental van and the mountain roads are windy and sometimes only wide enough for one vehicle. The nearest village is about a 30 minute hike uphill. It is a lovely place to explore with a couple of good restaurants - try the pizza at the campground! Stock up on groceries in Lucca on your way. Jonathan was super helpful and welcoming - he can answer all your questions and was available by phone whenever we needed anything. We all agreed that this was our favorite part of our 3 weeks in Italy.

Great place to stay, the family and I loved it. Plenty of extras not mentioned in the advert like table tennis, footballs, tennis rackets etc.

The swimming pool made the holiday that much better.

A very very relaxing holiday.

Very nice stay in villa Fontanella

  • 4 of 5

Une très belle propriété dans un cadre verdoyant et ensoleillé. Belle région alentour, loin de la chaleur de la plaine de Lucca en plein été. Nous y avons passe un très agréable séjour entre amis avec enfants. Des équipements électroménagers un peu fatigués mais un four à bois pour les pizza qui fonctionne à merveille.

Petite précision : la piscine est profonde sur toute la longueur.

Magnifique propriété

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé un magnifique séjour à Correglia Anteminelli. Jonathan et Simona, les propriétaires, sont très sympathiques et nous ont accueillis avec gentillesse et attention. La propriété est vraiment magnifique et très agréable à vivre surtout en période de grosse chaleur car il y a beaucoup d'ombre et les nuits sont douces.

Seul petit bémol, l’électroménager est en fin de course, et la chaudière de la deuxième maison doit être quotidiennement réactivée pour avoir de l'eau chaude.

Les chambres sont spacieuses et la literie de qualité, le linge de maison et même les serviettes de bain sont fournis. Toutes les conditions sont réunies pour passer un merveilleux séjour, je recommande cette location.
